Last Call for Submissions / Landscape Photographer of the Year 2010

Entries for the fourth annual Take A View – Landscape Photographer of the Year Award are now open.  Photographers have until July 15th to upload their pictures to for a chance to win £10,000.

Take A View, the idea of renowned landscape photographer, Charlie Waite, is one of the nation’s most exciting photographic awards – the search for the UK’s Landscape Photographer of the Year 2010.

The competition is open to everyone & you can enter up to 15 photographs across the four categories.  Unlike many other photographic competitions, ‘Take a view’ celebrates the United Kingdom only, offering photographers worldwide the opportunity to showcase their images of this richly diverse country. 

For the first time in 2010, the Landscape Photographer of the Year Award will include a special category for urban landscapes, enabling photographers from all parts of the country to engage with their surroundings and to submit images that will showcase the UK’s landscapes and environments like never before. 

The award partners for 2010 are Network Rail and the nature conservation agency, Natural England. Network Rail will be awarding a special prize for the best photograph taken on their rail network and Natural England has a special award for the image that best represents the idea of ‘Landscape on your Doorstep’. Only images that are taken within a 10-mile radius of your front door are eligible, so you don’t need to travel far from home. We want to highlight the enormous variety of landscapes in this country that are easily accessible to everyone.

What better way to celebrate the lengthening days and the start of summer than to get outdoors with a camera and capture the surrounding landscapes?  Whether it’s skyscrapers of glass and steel or rolling fields of sleepy sheep the UK’s diverse landscapes are a playground for even the most experienced photographer. To enter all you have to do is visit and upload your photographs.
